Graduates & Research
Each year, our fourth-year students complete a research project that explores a topic of their choosing related to the medical humanities. Recent graduates’ research projects are listed below with accompanying presentations.
We also encourage our students to consider publishing their work and research. Medical humanities students have published reflections written during third-year journaling, collaborated on essays with faculty, and submitted opinion pieces to various publications. Those interested in publishing may want to consider some of these medical student publication venues.
